Upholding academic excellence
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the first and only international honor society for the Computing Sciences. The UC Berkeley chapter, launched in 1995, honors the top tier of Computer Science students on campus.
We help others
UPE keeps all students from Berkeley's technical disciplines well-informed of our student activities through intensive marketing over the web and e-mail, print posters, and in-class announcements to the student body. UPE engages students with infosessions, tutoring, workshops, and more, making us renowned for our service to the university community. We not only reach out to computer science students and faculty, but also the EECS, math, and other engineering majors.
Connections and Opportunities
We work closely with major corporations, organizing events ranging from brief one-hour info-sessions about companies and recruiting opportunities to full-scale day-long sessions to showcase their research and product development. Our resumé books make it easier for companies to target the top Berkeley CS students.
Each semester, we extend membership to the top third of declared CS majors as provided by the CS department. Candidates will join one of our committees and contribute to the Berkeley CS community.
